Murang'a - A primary school teacher in Murang'a County, Kenya, has been sentenced to 90 years in prison for sexually assaulting nine male pupils.

John Gichia Mugi allegedly committed the crimes between January and May 2014, only two terms after joining the school.

He was serving as the boys' boarding master.

Mugi's crimes were exposed after the boys asked to go home following a parents' meeting at the school.

However, the school principal tried to cover up the case and was, as a result, struck off the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) roll, Daily Nation reported.

The boys, who were aged between 13 and 16, told court that the teacher touched their private parts and kissed them as they went to bed after evening studies.
